Kiana & the Sun Kings
Mixing elements of R&B and soul with their jazz roots, Kiana & the Sun Kings make music that is modern yet timeless, energetic yet contemplative. It is their ultimate goal to make music that dabbles equally in complexity and simplicity, crafting sounds for the jazz player and casual listener alike. In just three short years since their formation, the band gained traction from their beloved home base, Louisville KY, and spread that love to surrounding midwestern cities and beyond. With the recent release of their debut single “Metamorphosis,” this fiery septet will continue to push the sonic envelope. Keep an ear out for the release of their first EP entitled “Chrysalis” this Spring.
